An anonymous reader writes: Electronic eyes today remind me of Frankenstein the way they jab electrodes from each pixel into the optic nerve and hope for the best. These researchers claims to have solved this problem by growing fractal electrodes that mimic the way real eyes connect retinal cells to the optic nerve. If they are right--and their research will find out over the next year--then next-generation eEyes could enable the blind to not just detect objects, but to see again normally.
